  • Beta feedback thread: https://sourceforge.net/p/naps2/discussion/general/thread/8776c818/
  • Linux support (download one of the portable archives - currently experimental, please give feedback!)
    -- Requires Mono (5.17+ preferably), see https://www.naps2.com/doc-getting-started.html#system-requirements
  • Added an automatic update check
    -- Opt in from the About window
    -- Not available if installed from the MSI
  • New OCR version, significantly more accurate in many cases
    -- The OCR button will prompt to update. This can be disabled with the NoUpdatePrompt flag in appsettings.xml
    -- Not supported on Windows XP (will use the older version instead)
    -- You can choose between multiple modes: Fast (recommended), Best (slow), and Legacy (to simulate the older version)
  • Added the ability to choose an email provider
    -- When you first click Email PDF, you will be prompted to choose. Afterwards use Email Settings to change
    -- Switch between installed clients (Outlook, Thunderbird, etc.)
    -- Webmail integration for Gmail and Outlook Web Access
  • Added support for Unicode in email attachment names
  • Crop selection will be remembered (in case you're cropping multiple images but need to adjust them individually)
  • Added the ability to run most operations in the background for multitasking
  • Improved performance with very large images
  • Substantially reduced installation footprint and portable zip size
  • Minimized TWAIN UI in console and batch mode
  • NAPS2 installers are now signed
    -- This should eventually help remove SmartScreen notifications
  • NAPS2 will now run in 64-bit mode on compatible systems
    -- If you have a 64-bit system, NAPS2 will better handle memory-intensive operations
    -- If you downloaded the add-on to open any PDF (gsdll32.dll), you may need to re-download the 64-bit version
  • Improved documentation and usability for developers (see https://www.naps2.com/doc-dev-onboarding.html)
  • Bug fixes
